Just make PI a civil ticket like a parking ticket or unruly house. Keep the fine the same, just have it be less of a "crime" on the books.
Not that a PI keeps anyone from getting a job, but still.
The whole reasoning behind arresting someone for PI, is that they are a danger to themselves/others. So, making it a civil ticket would make the charge completely pointless.
However, it is far too subjective and is way more aggressively enforced over VEISHEA weekend than the other 362 days of the year. If the police have to carry you into jail because you are passed out on the street, than OK. Otherwise, let people go about their business and get home safely.
